Happy 18th birthday, parterre box

To think, if I’d had a kid instead, he could be out there supporting me now, or at least off at college smoking dope and getting laid.

(The first issue of parterre box, the queer opera zine appeared on December 3, 1993, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the birth of Maria Callas.)

          and don’t ask me how I know of this stuff, a story to sad to tell.

    Well, although I seldom leave a comment here because of all the esoteric knowledge and incredible bitchery on display, I can at least congratulate myself on actually sending La Cieca hard-earned dollars to receive a hard copy in the mail (18 years ago?? -- that seems a LONG time), for what it’s worth. Now if I could only FIND a hard copy somewhere in the files…
